NEXT-GENERATION DIGITAL INFORMATION STORAGE IN DNA

NEXT-GENERATION DIGITAL INFORMATION STORAGE IN DNA | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

Digital information is accumulating at an astounding rate, straining our ability to store and archive it. DNA is among the most dense and stable information media known. The development of new technologies in both DNA synthesis and sequencing make DNA an increasingly feasible digital storage medium. We developed a strategy to encode arbitrary digital information in DNA, wrote a 5.27-megabit book using DNA microchips, and read the book by using next-generation DNA sequencing.

La société californienne d'aérospatiale et de défense Raytheon se renforce sur la cybersécurité. Elle vient de débourser 1,9 milliard de dollars pour acquérir Websense, a indiqué l'agence Reuters samedi 18 avril, citant des sources proches du dossier et confirmant une information du site spécialisé dans la high-tech CRN. Websense, spécialisée dans la sécurité des réseaux informatiques, appartenait précédemment au fonds de capital-investissement Vista Equity Partners. Ce fonds conserve toutefois 20% du capital. « Raytheon paie l’équivalent de plus de quatre à cinq fois le chiffre d’affaires annuel de Websense » a précisé le Wall Street Journal ce lundi.

In treating epilepsy, the ideal solution is to act at a seizure's onset, but only in the affected regions of the brain. Here, an organic electronic ion pump is demonstrated, which directly delivers on-demand pure molecules to specific brain regions. State-of-the-art organic devices and classical pharmacology are combined to control pathological activity in vitro, and the results are verified with electrophysiological recordings.

Nanorobotic agents open the blood-brain barrier, offering hope for new brain treatments

Nanorobotic agents open the blood-brain barrier, offering hope for new brain treatments | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
(Nanowerk News) Magnetic nanoparticles can open the blood-brain barrier and deliver molecules directly to the brain, say researchers from the University of Montreal, Polytechnique Montréal, and CHU Sainte-Justine ("Remote control of the permeability of the blood–brain barrier by magnetic heating of nanoparticles: A proof of concept for brain drug delivery"). This barrier runs inside almost all vessels in the brain and protects it from elements circulating in the blood that may be toxic to the brain.


The research is important as currently 98% of therapeutic molecules are also unable to cross the blood-brain barrier.
“The barrier is temporary opened at a desired location for approximately 2 hours by a small elevation of the temperature generated by the nanoparticles when exposed to a radio-frequency field,” explained first author and co-inventor Seyed Nasrollah Tabatabaei. “Our tests revealed that this technique is not associated with any inflammation of the brain.

So long, transistor: How the 'memristor' could revolutionize electronics - CNN.com

So long, transistor: How the 'memristor' could revolutionize electronics - CNN.com | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

From electrons to ions
Simply put, the memristor could mean the end of electronics as we know it and the beginning of a new era called "ionics".

The transistor, developed in 1947, is the main component of computer chips. It functions using a flow of electrons, whereas the memristor couples the electrons with ions, or electrically charged atoms.

In a transistor, once the flow of electrons is interrupted by, say, cutting the power, all information is lost. But a memristor can remember the amount of charge that was flowing through it, and much like a memory stick it will retain the data even when the power is turned off.

This can pave the way for computers that will instantly turn on and off like a light bulb and never lose data: the RAM, or memory, will no longer be erased when the machine is turned off, without the need to save anything to hard drives as with current technology.

But memristors have another fundamental difference compared with transistors: they can escape the boundaries of binary code.

France’s National Assembly just voted for the legalization of Edward Snowden-style whistleblowing | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

If American whistleblower Edward Snowden were French, he would have had a good chance of remaining a free man — despite having leaked thousands of classified intelligence documents.


Whereas both Democratic and Republican U.S. lawmakers have repeatedly emphasized that Snowden and other similar whistleblowers should face punishment, French members of parliament took the oppositestance Thursday. The French National Assembly passed an amendment that legalizes the leak of information by intelligence employees if they want to expose an abuse of power by their own authorities.


"The Snowden case has demonstrated the need to create conditions so that agents can denounce abuses by the intelligence services," Jean-Jacques Urvoas, the amendment's author, was quoted as saying by French radio station France Inter.
